Did you know that August is National Golf Month?

From the seasoned to the decidedly green (pun intended), golfers nationwide use National Golf Month as an excuse to hit the green. As if they needed another reason to celebrate the sport that almost 30 million Americans harbor a passion for!

The modern game of golf is largely believed to have originated in 15thcentury Scotland, with ancient origins tracing all the way back to the Roman game of paganica, in which participants used a bent stick to hit a stuffed leather ball. That makes the sport of golf almost 2,000 years old!

The Professional Golfers’ Association of America (PGA) founded National Golf Month in 1993 to promote the sport as family accessible and open to all ages, genders and skill levels. During this month, golfers are encouraged to celebrate and share their favorite pastime with anyone and everyone who’d like to join in on the fun.

 

How can you celebrate?

There are many ways to observe National Golf Month that are doable for even the most inexperienced golfers. You can hit the range to get a little practice or try to take a few strokes off your game. You could play in a charity golf tournament that benefits a good cause within your community.

Or if you’ve never played before, what better time than the present to give it the old college try?! Ultimately, just get out and play for National Golf Month.
